DAVY-ANN Subero, 24, who is following in the footsteps of her father, has recently become an attorney.
Subero’s father, David Subero, an attorney for the past eight years, is also a police inspector and legal officer based in the South Western Division.
On May 10, the Siparia resident was called to the bar at the Hall of Justice, in Port of Spain. Subero said her father exposed her to law during his studies, and after doing her own research, she developed a love for it.
"Since I was in Form Three, I was thinking about doing law. I delved into it and later found that it fit my personality. For me, it has nothing to do with a luxurious life, but rather it is about serving others and I like helping others. I am hoping to be an influence on other women," Subero told Newsday.
The past pupil of Holy Faith Convent, Penal, obtained eight subjects at the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examination and four at the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE).
She pursued her Bachelor of Laws degree as an external student with the University of London through the Institute of Law and Academic Studies (ILAS) at Chaguanas.
Subero attained her degree with upper second-class honours in 2017, and completed her post-graduate diploma in Legal Practice from the Staffordshire University in the UK in June 2018.
She also completed her internship with the renowned firm, Dipnarine Rampersad and Company, at Gordon Street in San Fernando where she is employed.
Subero said, "Studying required a lot of sacrifices. I gave up leisure time and many times I was depressed and confined to a room, but I persisted through God and prayers. My parents played a huge role in supporting me, morally and financially. Special thanks go to Mr Reagan Rowans of ILAS and Mr Dipnarine Rampersad."
She intends to pursue masters degrees in public law and commercial law.
She and her father are not the only family members who have a love for studying law. Subero said her two brothers are studying it.
